  1. This comment has been overwritten by this open source script:
  3. Overwriting works to protect user privacy in two ways...
  5. 1. The Reddit database does not physically delete a comment when you click delete, but since it also does not store each version of an edited comment, then this overwrite acts as a more effective delete function.
  7. 2. While there are 3rd party websites that archive Reddit comment threads, they are not efficient, reliable, nor presumably persistent.  Most importantly, they do not allow the easy browsing of a users comment history.
  9. Reddit has seen a sharp increase in doxxing, stalking, harassment, and censorship recently, and this script attempts to protect users while also advising other users of the danger.
